The Council is asked to approve the Pay Policy Statement 2020/21, in the light of a report from the Governance Committee.
97.1 The Council considered changes to the Pay Policy Statement 2020/21 in the light of a report from the Governance Committee (pages 43 to 54).
97.2 An amendment was moved by Mr Jones and seconded by Dr Walsh.
‘Extract from Appendix 1, page 49
The County Council has determined
that a vote by the Council on severance payments above
£100,000 a defined threshold is
not required unless agreed otherwise by the Chairman
and group leaders. This is due to the fact that the
Governance Committee determines all pay policies including those
affecting severance payments.’
97.3 The amendment was lost.
97.4 Resolved –
That the proposed revisions to the Pay Policy Statement, as set out in Appendix 1 to the report, be approved.
